Great shows this month

There are a few extremely fun parties happening in the next few weeks:

This Thursday, CDM is celebrating its 5th anniversary with a free-beer EVENT on MacDougal Street. There will be live music. There will be a dance contest. The winner will get a new laptop. (UPDATE with new info)

Then, on Friday, friend-of-The-Shamblers Jordan S. (late of 349 St. John's St. Radio) is bringing his new noise act "Family" to the BlackWave (John Ryan Theater) basement in DUMBO, 25 Jay Street, 9pm. FREE!!

The following evening, at the Lakeside Lounge, WFMU is celebrating the launch of their new webshow, Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban (with Debbie D). There'll be DJ sets from all of your (well, all of Jess and I's) favorite station DJs and the usual good-time-shenanigans of a WFMU party. Plus, it's free.

A week later, the In/Out Computer Music Festival is happening at The Tank. Performances, workshops, hobnobbing with your favorite micro-celebrities... I'm really looking forward to this one.

Following that, the Lollapalooza-of-Chiptune Blip Festival will be returning to the Bellhouse, December 17-19. I've yet to see this kind of thing done live, but have been jazzed about what I've heard (yeah, I went there). Three days might be a little extreme, but I'm willing to give it a go.

(Coincident to Blip Fest on 12/17, Richard Lainhart-- he of the 200e/Continuum fame-- will be putting on an audio/visual performance IN QUAD on Centre Street in money making Manhattan.)

THEN, on the 18th, Bardo Pond and White Out (w/ Thurston) are playing at the fanciest place in town, Le Poisson Rouge. 7pm, $10. You're going, right?

What a month! Hope to see you all out and about!!
